Ransomware malware – which makes files inaccessible to the user by locking them out through encryption – is a rising threat in Canada, with 35 per cent of 125 organizations surveyed by Osterman Research Inc. reporting being the victim of ransomware attacks. Once infected, the organization or business can only regain access to them once they’ve paid money to the originator of the ransomware.
Last year businesses paid close to US$1-billion in ransom fees to cyber criminals. And Canadian businesses are among the top targets because we pay out more than the norm. A disturbing trend indicates that in 85 per cent of ransomware cases, infection originates from an opened email attachment, highlighting the need to increase awareness at all levels of an organization of how cyber breaches work.
During the panel discussion, Danny will discuss what makes businesses targets, how to prevent attacks and what to do once a cyber breach such as ransom malware is discovered.
